I started working as a carer part time during university. Now it's 9 years later and I still love helping and empowering others to live more independently. In the past years I have had various positions including senior carer, family support worker and mental health support worker. I provide a person centred care approach for all individuals and prompt independent living. I help with personal care, feeding, preparation of meals, going out for appointments, shopping and helping with administration of medication. Also I have helped with applying for benefits and other admin duties.
I treat people as an individual and allow them to lead their own care as much as possible. I am a good listener with good communication skills and I am reliable and honest. I can work with people from different backgrounds and different age groups. Lastly, a big smile is part of who I am and I love making other people smile too.
In my spare time I love to travel and explore new places. I like going on long walks and do some photography along the way. Watching nature and history documentaries are my favourite, and I also enjoy action movies.
